Black-headed gull (Chroicocephalus ridibundus) by alabang, on Flickr

The black-headed gull (Chroicocephalus ridibundus) is a small gull which breeds in much of Europe and Asia, and also in coastal eastern Canada. Most of the population is migratory, wintering further south, but some birds in the milder westernmost areas of Europe are resident. Some birds will also spend the winter in northeastern North America, where it was formerly known as the common black-headed gull. As is the case with many gulls, it had previously been placed in the genus Larus.

Oh, very nice Paolo!

Definitely.  The 40mm is a nice counterpart to carrying a big telephoto.  Throw it in a pocket and pull it out if you need something wider.

Thank you candyman and Dustin.

I often use the pancake as my "lenscap" whenever I go birding to document a trip with fellow birders in tow.

I really appreciated the portability of the lens while I was traveling in Japan. It beats carrying any EF lens much less any L lens.

My sole complaint is that it was not offered with a f/2.0 aperture like Voigtlander.

This lens swore me off the 35/1.4 L II.



Wonder if it'll get out resolved by the 7D Mark II or 5DS R.  ;D

+++1 Usually gets slipped in the bag or brought along when I travel light. Sharp and reliable and with me. A handy focal length either on my 6D or my old 500D as shown here.
